The Interim Strategy Note (ISN) for Afghanistan details the World Bank Group’s approach to helping the country achieve its development goals. It envisages a grant program of around $600 million, covering the period 2009 – 2011.
The Bank’s strategy rests on three pillars:
- Building the capacity and accountability of the state to its citizens to provide services that are affordable, accessible and adequate;
- Promoting growth of the rural economy and livelihoods; and
- Supporting growth of a formal, modern and competitive private sector.
